How to reduce staff
Revise staffing. Perhaps it is only at first glance it seems that it's blown. Analyze photos of the work day each of the posts. Of them you will be able to see exactly what the worker since coming to work until its end. If you have such thing as "photo of the day" no, start revising the staffing need with their preparation. Too careful consideration of qualifications. For some businesses makes sense, instead of two inexperienced workers to take one with greater competence, for others – Vice versa. Some generic tips on the subject can not be, as well as advice on the revision of work shifts. Think, perhaps, the hidden labour reserve can be found in this?
Decide which employees you would lay off. Take into account, not the personal relationships of sympathy or antipathy, and the qualifications and benefits that the employee brings (or not brings) team. Check his skills, staging certification. Regardless of what reduction of staff in question – the management, maintenance, production or technical, the certification shall be based on a certain algorithm.

Develop case studies, simulate a situation close to that which the employee faces or may face in the workplace. Invite experts to assess the evaluation.
We will announce our decision, inviting the dismissed employee in the office. It is not necessary to divulge this information publicly. Remember that these people work for you, then they, in General, you are satisfied, and if not for the situation in which you are faced with the necessity of downsizing, perhaps they would have continued to work. Execute the termination of the cooperation within the framework stipulated by the labour code, without compelling staff to write the application "at own will".
